Hi all,
in xpeditor we can xpedit line by line by pressing F9.
By pressing F9 we will go down line by line .
But if we want to go up line by line from a certain point wat we have to do???

How can you run a program "up"? Can you write such a program that make sense when running bottom to top?

We cannot debug backward, however we can trace back and see the how line was executed.
1. After entering into Xped session, type MONITOR in command line
2. Setup a break point from where you want to trace backwards
3. press PF12 (GO) the program should execute and will stop at the break point
4. Now in command line type REVERSE
5. If you press PF9 the line by line will be in backward direction and you can see what was the value in the variable and how it executed.

In Xpeditor Debug backwards is done by REVERSE and that's what I explained, but this doesnt actually mean that the code is executing in reverse direction.

Hi all,
I wanted to apply the above mentioned method to my PLI program and when i entered MONITOR and REVERSE commands, i get the following messages from xpeditor...

Code:

------------------------- XPEDITER/TSO - SOURCE ------------------------------
COMMAND ===> MONITOR                                          SCROLL ===> CSR
                          CURRENT MODULE IS NOT COBOL                         
                                               ----+----1----+               


Code:
.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
------------------------- XPEDITER/TSO - SOURCE ------------------------------
COMMAND ===> REVERSE                                          SCROLL ===> CSR 
                           INVALID COMMAND FOR PL/I                           
                                               ----+----1----+                 


My question is , don't we have option of tracing back in reverse using any commands like we have(MONITOR, REVERSE) for cobol.

Thanks and Regards,
Ch
